Food Justice and Community Change
This introductory chapter narrates the conflict between celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). Los Angeles Unified School District accused Oliver of misrepresenting the district's food service operations in order to garner more attention for his reality show. As the conflict between the LAUSD and Jamie Oliver grabbed headlines, the media conversation tried to determine which side seemed best equipped to teach children to “choose the right foods” and which side stood in the way of community health. However, it failed to report any substantive analysis of the food system, particularly on its ongoing structural failure and potential avenues for systemic change.
